The Chamber of Bone (Diablo I Quest)
The object of this quest is to enter Diablo's treasure vault (known as the Chamber of Bone) and claim the valuable items inside. The quest is initiated by reading a book on dungeon level six. The Book of Bone (Mythical Book) reads: "Beyond the Hall of Heroes lies The Chamber of Bone. Eternal death awaits any who would seek to steal the treasures secured within this room. So speaks the Lord of Terror, and so it is written."
The Chamber of Bone itself is accessed through a stairwell on level six, and contains a variety of monsters. There are several magic items inside as well as an Ancient Tome, which is hidden in the innermost chamber. Reading the Ancient Tome bestows the hero with one level of the Guardian spell, and completes the quest.

NPC Quest Dialog
Deckard Cain: "A book that speaks of a chamber of human bones? Well, a Chamber of Bone is mentioned in certain archaic writings that I studied in the Libraries of the East. These tomes inferred that when the Lords of the Underworld desired to protect great treasures, they would create domains where those who died in attempt to steal that treasure would be forever bound to defend it. A twisted, but strangely fitting, end?"
Farnham: "Okay, so listen. There's this Chamber of Wood, see. And his wife, you know - her - tells the tree... cause you gotta wait. Then I says, that might work against him, but if you think I'm gonna pay for this... You... uh... yeah."
Gillian: "I am afraid that I haven't heard anything about that. Perhaps Cain the storyteller could be of some help."
Griswold: "I know nothing of this place, but you may try asking Cain. He talks about many things, and it would not surprise me if he had some answers to your question."
Ogden: "I am afraid that I don't know anything about that, Good Master. Cain has many books that may be of some help."
Pepin: "This sounds like a very dangerous place. If you venture there, please take great care."
Wirt: "A vast and mysterious treasure, you say? Maybe I could be interested in picking up a few things from you... Or better yet, don't you need some rare and expensive supplies to get you through this ordeal?"
